Global Ocean Freight / Delay, Breach of Contract

1 Bolivia Review updated:
Contact information:

GOF picked up our goods from Des Moines Iowa in July 2008 for delivery to Cochabamba Bolivia. Numerous delays, excuses until finally the freight started movement a couple of months ago. Today we heard that GOF was going out of business just as our goods are about to reach Arica Chile, the nearest port. The freight forwarder for Arica to Cochabamba called to say that WE are now responsible for landing and transport from Arica even though we had prepaid the entire amount.

    Im sorry to hear about your case. Unfortunately we hear that often with the South American countries. The only thing that i would suggest is to have a broker that you can trust to work things out from Bolivia with a local company in Cbba, and have them pull your container straight to your final destination. Try to keep the least amount of people involved in the process as well.

    Good Luck,

    Fernando
